The main event of Western food is still eating. For those of us who use the chopsticks, it is always a mess to use Western cutlery. We all know that when eating western food, it is a left-handed knife (if you are used to the left hand, you can reverse the left and right forks). However, how much do you know about the use of the knife and fork in more detail?
The European way of using the knife and fork is to keep the left hand fork and the right hand knife. (This kind of dining method saves the time for changing the tableware, and the dining efficiency is undoubtedly much higher). These two kinds of dining methods are not high or low, you can choose the way you like, or you can choose the same way as the locals.
Step 1: Hold the fork with the left hand and the knife with the right hand. It is necessary to know that the European dining method is also called “the Tibetan handle method”. Because the handle of the fork and the knife has been hidden in the palm of the hand during the meal. The correct knife and fork grip is: hold the knife in the right hand, the handle is completely hidden in the palm of the hand, the right index finger is against the back of the knife; the left hand holds the fork, the fork of the fork is facing downwards, and the index finger of the left hand is placed on the handle of the fork. Lower part.
Step 2: Bend your wrist and aim at the food. Bend your wrists down and your index finger will naturally press against the knife and fork. Because the ceremonial dining method in Western food is that the elbows should naturally hang on both sides of the body, the elbows should not be placed on the table, and the wrists can be bent down to reduce the pressure on the elbows during the meal.
Step 3: The left and right forks are against the food and the right hand knife cuts the food. The food is cut into small and small pieces, just enough to eat a portion.
Step 4: The food fork will feed the food into the mouth. Also, the fork of the fork is facing down, and the fork is held by the left hand (the knife in the right hand should not be put down). The cut food is sent to the entrance.
